Do you love gold?
Lots of criminals do.
And pretty soon, they’ll realize that the value of the gold in some new watches from Apple is very very high.
Let’s see what the SFPD has to say:
“As with any new technology, of course there is a concern that thieves will prey on victims with the new technology,” San Francisco Police Department public information officer, Albie Esparza said. “Criminals are opportunistic. If there is a demand, there will be supply. It’s simple business economics.”
So, I don’t care what security features your multi-thousand dollar gold iWatch has, there’s nothing stopping somebody from taking your shiny and then melting it down to sell the gold for $1000 an ounce.
Now here’s a guy at the Original Aple Store at 1 Stockton in Union Square trying and failing to shoplift some $350(!) Beats headphones:
Apple realizes that its new watches will need to be protected just as at any other Union Square jewelry / bling bling store.
But once its on your wrist, security will be YOUR problem.
